Why should you buy a decking kit?

Decking kits are a simple way to cut out the confusion of shopping around when you are looking to build your own outdoor space. Decking kits contain all the materials you will need to build your decking, cut to the correct sizes and ready to use, meaning that you wont run out of boards when your project is almost complete. If this is your first time installing decking, then a decking kit means you can be confident that everything you need will be included before you start to build. A decking kit can also be excellent value for money, allowing you to purchase all the elements of your deck together without wasting money on excess wood or fixings.

What types of decking kit are available?

Using a decking kit should not restrict the type of decking that you choose to build. Kits are available in many different styles, so you can chose the one that is right for your garden and your taste. Decking is available in hard wood, soft wood, decking boards, composite decking, decking tiles, timber deck boards, plastic boards, and layered timber deck boards. There are then further options including non-slip finishes, artificial grass, and rubber inserts. Decking joists and risers may also be part of your kit, as well as the right kind of decking screws for your materials.

What other elements might you need to finish your decking project?

If you are building raised decking you will need to consider safety. Other structural elements which you may need in your decking kits include:

  • Balustrades and spindles: Such types of railing around your raised decking can prevent falls and also provide a decorative element.
  • Trellis panels: These can be used to enclose raised decking and also incorporate plants into your scheme.
  • Decking ropes: For a nautical look to your deck use ropes for hand rails around the edges.
  • Decking posts: These are built into raised decking at the corners and provide support for the ropes or balustrades.
